In the last hours it has filtered out on the Internet a merchandising image of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the next Marvel Studios film starring the MCU’s supreme sorcerer along with other characters who have a lot to say in the Marvel multiverse such as Scarlet Witch O America Chávez. Although returning to this new art of film as part of a 1,000 piece puzzle, we can see Doctor Strange facing one of his antagonists par excellence in the comics and who could appear in the film just as the puzzle itself suggests.
Shuma-Gorath as a villain in Doctor Strange 2?
Thus, these leaks are confirmed at the merchandising level, they would give validity to the previous rumors that already placed the famous galactic monster Shuma-Gorath in the MCU as the villain in the new interdimensional film Doctor Strange, directed by filmmaker Sam Raimi. Also, he recently appeared as a creature of the multiverse in the animated series. What If…?, introducing the character or a variant of it for the first time.
In addition, in the box we observe the art that leaked a few months ago and in which both Doctor Strange and his co-stars appear in the film, that is, Wong, América Chávez and Scarlet Witch. Let’s remember that Shuma-Gorath appeared for the first time in 1973, becoming a recurring villain of Doctor Strange, although he has also faced other superheroes such as the Avengers, The Fantastic 4 or The Guardians of the Galaxy.
Shuma-Gorath is a interdimensional entity very powerful that governs numerous universes through its powers to warp reality; its appearance is very characteristic thanks to its huge tentacles that are born from a large eye in the center. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness recently delayed its theatrical release, now moving on to May 6, 2022.
